the expansion includes higher taxes, includes medicare cuts. it also at the end of the day, according to the congressional budget office, does very little for most people in this country to actually reduce the cost of their health care insurance. in fact, what we've seen through the studies that have been done by the c.b.o., the congressional budget office, by the c.m.s. actuary is for most americans they are going to see at best their health insurance premiums stay the same and if you're in the market, go up. the health care bill is an example of this runaway federal spending. in the latter part of that debate, we got a response from the c.b.o. to a question that was posed by the senator from alabama, senator sessions, with regard to how the accounting is done on medicare. because one of the arguments that we heard throughout the course of the debate is that it would extend the life span of medicare. in fact, when the c.b.o., the the question was posed of them: what happens with this additional medicare tax and these medicare cuts that would be imposed upon providers and on senior ci

on the show that maybe this health reform should be simplified into a medicare expansion and that could be passed 51 votes and a reconciliation proposal in. >> i don't you'll get that on something as controversial as that from the senate. on the political side, i agree. one thing i think people should be clear on. there's no walking away from the bill. democrats own it. both chambers house and senate have vos h. voted for it. if this goes down, if it fails, all democrats have in 2010 is a failure. if it wins, if they still manage to pass it, they do get a day of headlines saying, historic headline and go into 2010 with something they can sell as a true accomplishment. i can't understand how anyone on the democratic side of the aisle would see the politics different than that. one thing you do get a sense of talking from them i'm not sympathetic to is just exhaustion. this is giving a lot of people an opportunity to give up. they're tired of angry town halls and angry constituents and tired of fighting with republicans and going on sunday shows, talking about things they care about. do
